Walkthrough

Begin the quest by finding Felicia Cori in the town square. Purchase the following items:  The Runes of Power I, The Runes of Power II, The Runes of Power III, The Runes of Power IV, and Gargoyles, Gutters, Splutters – Maintenance and Repair.

Read all books, and you will be asked to find and deactivate three magical seals. Unfortunately their locations are unknown, and you must find them.

The seals are hidden in underground chambers, and you should begin your search in the ruins north from the main gate, and south from the ruin where you have found the dice-poker players. Along the city’s wall you will find the third seal.

Note: Each time you approach a secret chamber, Geralt’s medallion vibrates.

When you enter a room, you will see four runes that must be extinguished; however you need to know the exact order. You can read the books you have bought or, you can try different combinations, but keep in mind that if you fail to guess the right order, you will take damage.

In the third room, while standing at the bottom of the stairs, extinguish the runes using  the following combinations:

First Combination: Rune on the right wall, rune on the floor to the right, rune on the left wall, rune on the floor to the left.

Second Combination:  Rune on the floor to your left, rune on the right wall, rune on the floor to your right, rune on the left wall.

One of these combination will deactivate the seal and remove the curse on the highlighted chest. Make sure you loot it, then exit and head south, around the Temerian Camp.

Note: If you open your map, know that the Temerian Camp is the area near the main gate, where you can see some red tents.

South from the said Temerian Camp you will find another room. Dispel the runes using one of these combinations:

First Combination:  Rune on the left wall, rune on the right wall, rune near the stairs, rune near the chest.

Second Combination: Rune on the left wall, rune near the stairs, rune next to the chest, rune on the right wall.

After you deactivate the seal, loot the chest because it contains an item which allows you to start a side-quest called An Encrypted Manuscript. After you activate the quest, exit the area and head north, to reach the amphitheater.

The third room, is located west from the Nilfgaardian Camp (where you have found Triss), in the Redanian Camp. Use the map below to locate it faster.

After you find it, deactivate the final seal.

First Combination: Rune on the floor to the right, rune on the floor to the left, rune on the left wall, rune on the right wall.

Second Combination:  Rune on the left wall, rune on the right wall, rune on the floor to the left, rune on the floor to the right.

When all seals have been deactivated, return to Bras of Ban Ard, near the inn to complete the quest. Don’t forget to mention the manuscript you have found (An Encrypted Manuscript side-quest).
